Sweet Sweat in Summer: The Naughty Girl and Her Ripe Scent, Is a nukige and players are given choices to make in the game and depending on your choices it will change the outcome of the story. I will be making this a spoiler free review so I will not talk about the ending outcome please do understand. Developed by Ammolite and Published by MangaGamer and can be found on the MangaGamer store for the English version. Relevant links can be found below of this review.

The Story 2.5/10

Please do note this is a nukige so having a low score on the story of a nukige is very Normal.

In Natsuiro Mikan, join Kouhei on his journey to recover his memories. As he travels to his hometown in search of his missing memories, he finds a lone young girl deserted in his hometown. Enticed by each other’s presence, the two begin to enjoy their hot and sultry summer full of new experiences and the sweet sweat of intermingling bodies.

This particular nukige really had me confused at the ending because the pacing felt a little off at the back and some parts off the story did not make any sense, that will be explained later. From the start basically like what the story says you the main character traveled back to his hometown in search of his missing memories and too only find the whole town deserted and only 1 girl in it, and you obviously have sex with her well this is a nukige. The front parts are majority H-scenes and it dropped small hints which does not make any sense at all until you play too the ending, I felt that the story is not very well written in this aspect the hints given too the reader of what is happening is too vague or it just simply does not make any sense at all so half the time I was like “What is happening?!?!” while the main character has sex with the lone girl he found in the deserted town everyday.

Why it gets confusing at the ending? Simple, the ending used those vague hints dropped at the front of the story to explain what is going on in the story which obviously failed to do so and I was needed to replay the ending area 3 times to get what is going on. As for the good end route it is extremely forced. So overall did I enjoy the story? No

Audio and Visual elements 4/10

Visual elements – As expected of a nukige it has to have good art because it already does not have a good story since it is purely focusing on erotic content for purely pornographic purposes, but the art is really good looking very smooth and solid at the same time and the character designs are cute but the backgrounds look average it does not really stand out in this aspect of the background.

Audio – Music in this eroge in particular is average at best but what I hated in this area is that the music cues in at such awkward timings and it spoils the whole mood and feeling you are getting from the VN itself. For example on the good route, when you get onto the good route sad music starts playing as it shows you the truth to everything and then the moment the truth is revealed and the “good things” of the story comes in, cheerful music instantly cuts in, in turn ruining the mood that it has set up in a flash. There in no build up or what it did was building it halfway and then it comes to a very sudden halt.

Do i recommend it? Simple answer would be no. Missing this out will not be such a big hit to you,s unless you like nukige then GO FOR IT!!! Why such a low score you ask? Simple despite it having really nice art and relatively average music the story feels forced and unnatural. When you first start off in this particular title you will slapped with H-scenes which is very normal for a nukige but at the same time totally useless and completely vague hints. So overall this VN is something which I will not recommend if you are looking for something good and serious.
